Thank you for you interest in selling your produce in the Locavore Store!
You’re probably wondering how to get started. The good news is – it’s pretty easy, and once it’s all set up our system will keep track of your inventory and sales. If you want help at any point – please ask!
First of all, the Locavore Store is no ordinary shop. It’s an online marketplace, more like Gumtree or eBay where you, as the producer offer your own product for sale. You decide what you want to sell and for how much. You record how much stock you have and when it will be available. You’ll essentially have your own mini-store within our website which you can manage yourself.
Unlike Gumtree, however, you don’t have to organise the cash transaction or the pickup. Customers will pay online with a credit card. Unlike eBay the product is not shipped to them – they collect it from our ‘store’. For this convenience, we charge a 30% commission fee. This will be taken out at every sale – please price accordingly so you still get the price you want for your product.
To keep stock running smoothly you can house your products at the Locavore Store, at 29 Binda Place, Bindoon. It’s the old bakery building – right next door to the ‘new’ Bindoon Bakehaus. Drop off on a daily, weekly or monthly basis – whatever is most appropriate for your product. We have coolrooms, freezers and storage space.
As soon as a purchase is made, you’ll get an email – and so will we. If your product is ready to go at the Locavore Store you won’t need to do anything. If not, it will be up to you to deliver it there and let the customer know when it’s ready.
Here’s how to register:
